Rant and Rave

So. I know you're probably sick of hearing about me whine about my pregnancy. So I'm not going to right now. Let's just say I'm really, really, really ready to have this child, and if she's not out in three weeks like her brothers were, I'm cutting my belly open myself to retrieve her. Okay, I'm not, but I'll want to.

Instead of a rant, you'll get to read a rave. Here is currently what is fabulous about my pregnancy, or what's fabulous right now in my life. And it's for real; I'm not being sarcastic.

1. First of all, a shout-out to Isaac and Heidi for having their baby earlier this week. Congratulations! And super props to Heidi-I've not had to squeeze that much human out of me before. 9 lbs. 12 oz.? Yeah, that's about 3 pounds more than mine have been thus far, which makes a huge difference. If you don't know from experience, just trust me on that one. She's a doll, so go check out her pictures on their blog! It makes me excited to see my own girl soon.

2. Today I've conquered as many weeks as I have days left. 35 weeks down, 35 days left. How awesome is that?

3. My kids have been awesomely self-entertaining today. They even fed themselves lunch! We had pizza last night, and Brock the raccoon got it out of the fridge and his brothers joined in. They still claimed hunger when the actual lunch time rolled around, but didn't really eat, as eating most of a whole large pizza between the three of them filled them sufficiently. Yeah, if I collapsed somewhere in the house I wouldn't have to worry at all about them starving to death.

4. And because I was weeping in agony last night, I needed a laugh today. Hollywood posted this on her blog a while back, and I laughed my head off! It's from a book called Safe Baby Handling Tips. And apparently there's a Safe Baby Pregnancy Tips as well-I'll have to peruse my local bookstore and get it! I don't know if this is it in its entirety, but it's what has been posted. I hope you laugh as much as I did! (Please excuse the spacing on it-blogspot was having picture posting issues, and I'm sick of trying to make it look pretty.)

Good luck on getting her here early. I hope that works out for you. My boy was 11 days early and both girls- only 1 day. It was a long almost two weeks waiting for Erin. Just treasure every day and every kick. You may never feel another one like that again!

I love those...however a couple I don't see a problem with: stimulating baby, clearing babies nose, playing with baby... LOL!! I am glad you still have a positive attitude. It's nice to hear. You are almost there! Stay strong!! I don't even want to tell you, but I would have had my babies a week ago if I were you. :S Not good. I am hoping these last weeks fly by!

Dude, you're 35 weeks? I'm so bad at counting. So that makes me... 33 weeks tomorrow, right? I'm glad you keep track, because then I just add two weeks to your count! :) Loved the pictures. I loved "making baby smile." That was giggle-inducing.

Big G asked this morning to play with Jakob. We will have to get together again!
